Some thought just popped up in my head.

I am also sure that Google is perusing exactly this.

internal 3D mapping of buildings by their "glasses" in the form of laser dot matrix + differential sensor readings from the two "eye" sensors.

now imagine thousands uploading these exact information to their server, with this information; they can construct a model that could rival any the brain could construct.

A collective vision, a single brain with millions of eyes.

street view would become real view.

You realize, don't you, that the last ice age thawed around 11,500 years ago, 90% of the planet's history is one of being buried under hundreds of feet of ice (except perhaps at the equator), and that all of our bold and foxy efforts are up against a 500,000 year optical design cycle(?):

Perhaps we had best hurry up before we roast the planet, plunging us into the next ice age ?
